A joyous update comes from Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s household as they welcome a new addition to their family.
Their journey towards this happy moment has been marked by significant emotional milestones, and it’s heartwarming to see them emerge stronger and more complete as a family unit.
Let’s take a closer look at this beautiful journey.
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend Welcome Their Fourth Child via Surrogate
Chrissy Teigen, the renowned US model, has shared her overflowing joy at the birth of her fourth child with husband John Legend, expressing that her heart is “officially full.”
This exciting news was revealed through a heartfelt social media announcement.
An Expression of Gratitude to Their Surrogate
Teigen extended her sincere thanks to their surrogate, Alexandra, for the “incredible gift.”
The couple decided to honor the surrogate by naming their newborn son Wren Alexander Stephens.
A Long-Held Desire for a Family of Four
In her emotional post on Instagram, 37-year-old Teigen revealed that she had always dreamt of having four children.
She also poignantly referenced the tragic pregnancy loss they endured in 2020 when they were expecting another son.
The Journey to Expand the Family Following Loss
In her heartfelt post, Teigen recounted how after losing their son, Jack, she didn’t believe she would be able to carry more children.
In 2021, they approached a surrogacy agency and considered the possibility of having two tandem surrogates, each to bring a healthy baby into their lives.
However, she told Legend she wanted to “try to carry just one more time,” leading them to “restart the IVF process.”
The Birth of their Daughter and the Gift of Surrogacy
Teigen and Legend welcomed their daughter Esti in January, conceived through this restarted IVF process.
Around the same time, they met Alexandra, their surrogate, who Teigen praised as “the most incredible, loving, compassionate surrogate” they could have hoped for.
A Full Heart and a Full Home
Teigen’s message brimmed with gratitude and joy for their surrogate, Alexandra, and announced the arrival of their son, Wren Alexander Stephens.
She concluded her message by expressing the completeness they now feel, with their hearts and home “officially full.”
A special mention was made to their late son, Jack, acknowledging the angelic blessings they believe he imparts on their family.
